15 January 2019

Tourism promotion boards, hospitality brands, hotels, attractions, airlines and inbound tour operators invited to connect to the Gulf Countries’ leading tourism buyers and MICE specialists

AVIAREPS, the global leader and expert in developing and shaping outbound tourism, aviation and hospitality demand and spend, with a portfolio of more than 100 airlines and 250 travel and tourism clients worldwide, has announced the 2019 dates for a series of non-destination specific tourism roadshows to be conducted in the Middle East. Known as the AVIAREPS Middle East Travel Caravan, the roadshows are open to all national, regional and city tourism promotion boards, hospitality brands, inbound tour operators, airlines, and even individual hotels, resorts and attractions.

Now in its fourth year, the AVIAREPS Middle East Travel Caravan was launched to provide all tourism, hospitality and aviation entities of all sizes, a platform that ensures quality individual meeting opportunities with the market’s leading outbound contractors, product developers, general managers, sales managers, and MICE specialists, including specialised luxury, adventure, medical and educational outbound operators. A format of both pre-scheduled meetings through match making efforts, combined with free one to one meetings, allows those both new to, and established, in the markets to test, enter and expand their regional footprint, networks and sales.

“Outbound from the Gulf Countries continues to grow year on year. Not only do travellers from the Gulf Countries tend to travel more often than others, but they also overwhelmingly tend to stay longer and have one of the world’s highest average daily spends while travelling. The luxury travel segment is particularly strong, as too is MICE travel, providing a multitude of opportunities for entities seeking to diversify their client mix.”

Johnston continues;

“Personal networks and ongoing connection remains an essential ingredient for business success within our region. A key focus for us is to ensure that through our well-established industry networks, both co-participants and our carefully selected Middle Eastern outbound partners see a return on their investment and a growth in their business. That is our commitment to these events.”
